- Oregon has to lose a close game one of these days, right? After beating USC 65-62, the Ducks are now 9-0 in games decided by 10 points or less. Devoe Joseph and Garrett Sim helped hold off USC late, hitting some big shots, and six combined free throws in the last couple minutes, continuing the trend of being excellent in the closing minutes. This was a close game than many expected, as the Ducks turned the ball over 19 times, but they got the W, and that's all that matters.
- George Schroeder's column today is on Matthew Knight Arena, and he notes that we're still waiting for a great crowd. There are a number of reasons for that, that Schroeder goes over, but I hope that as the team improves so do the fans, and the atmosphere.
- Adam Jude concludes The RG's three-part series on the three QBs that will be competing this spring, with a profile on Bryan Bennett. He's ready to compete, and is taking responsibility as the oldest QB on the team. He learned from one of the best, and he's ready to meet the high expectations set by those that came before him. And he's learned how to talk like an Oregon football player.
- Moseley has his 2011 review of the secondary. Despite losing Cliff Harris, the Ducks showed just how much talent they've been building, and that should continue next season. I'm very glad that John Boyett decided to stick around.
- Oregon gets some mention in early draft exit articles. Doc Saturday mentions Darron Thomas. Also, Mel Kiper shares his thoughts on LaMichael Lames, DT, and Cliff Harris.
- Some recruiting news, the Ducks will be getting a few visits this weekend, including visits from 3 current commits.
- Bob Rickert has the latest on Shaq Thompson and Arik Armstead. Sounds like Oregon might make out pretty well from the fallout of Tosh Lupoi's decision to leave Cal.
